The Shakedown vocal flubs are pretty humorous but - if you wait for it Jerry grabs on to something extra fierce during the jan.

Subject: say what you will about the shakedown...
the lazy/supplication is worth the listen

Subject: Last Chance
Touch Of Grey and Morning Dew were first class. Nice Dire Wolf. Shakedown leads were psychedelic! The house lights were on for Baby Blue, a touching moment. Jerry was so high for this one, I have to mention given the flubs in Terrapin and Shakedown. The guitar playing was compensating mightily though. Was not in a position to say that ever again after this show. Saratoga was fun though.

Subject: OH NO!!! FLUBBED LYRICS!!! RUN AWAY , , , ,
The lyrics at the start of Shakedown are well and truly flubbed. As one earlier reviewer commented very aptly "what kind of stocking stuffer was that Jerry?" Yep. Maybe he had too much too fast . . . . But about the time you quit laughing they really, really get a truly memorable groove going-- majority of the song is just absolutely killer and Jerry sure ain't lost . . . . .

Subject: Love the Shakedown
Yes, Jerry flubs the lyrics. It doesn't stop this from being a great Shakedown. I'm not sure where the first reviewer (only 6 years ago) is coming from as far as Jerry getting very lost during his solo. It's actually a brilliant solo. I say this as a listener, and as a guitar player. And yes, it is the one from Bay Area Boogie - one of my first "bootleg" CDs many years ago. And the Samson rocks as well, despite an opening lyric flub.

Subject: (thee) shakedown slow down
craws at a snails pace.

4 stars for sound. but as far as vibe; seems like downers with no band member clearly "on"

(if i had to say i'd say drummers)
everyone else has a lazy-feel

Subject: solid groove for an '82 show
enjoyed this all afternoon staying kind.
Reviewer: Burnt Rich - - June 10, 2007
Subject: What kinda stocking stuffer was that, Jerry?
Jerry is obviously feeling REAL good after that set break, huh? Maybe a lil' void in the lyric deparment gettin things going, but the jammin' is some deep stuff and loose as a goose for the most part. No complaints from this fan. First set has some gems--Man Smart in the first set, On the Road Again, and a lil' latter-day Lazy Lightning. Great show-great era for the band-AND especially Jerry Band around this time, too. I like Christmas in June. Great upload-Thanks.

HEY, IF SOMEONE HAS A GOOD AUDIENCE TAPE OF 12/27/82, COULD YOU PLEASE POST IT? THERE WAS A ROCKIN' SCARLET-FIRE THAT NIGHT THAT I'M DYING TO HEAR. THANKS! JR

Overlooked, I am enjoying this beauty right now.
Reviewer: cringle - - February 5, 2006
Subject: its good
Actually, Jerry's noddy vocal notwithstanding, this is one of my favorite Shakedowns. It fukin GROOVES.
Reviewer: kidstardust - - October 16, 2005
Subject: Bad Rap
This show has its flaws, no doubt. But there are some highlights. The 1st set is solid, with Jack Straw, Lazy Lightning -> Deal, all above average with clear sound.

I remember hearing this show on an FM broadcast a long ago & the thing I remember was how together the band sounded. Ironically, they come apart in the 2nd set. But the 1st set is worth owning.
Reviewer: birdsgosouth - - July 28, 2005
Subject: mumble jumble
You have to hear the shakedown - it's so badly bungled it's hilarious (and then Bobby spaces the first line of Samson) - the first set is pretty decent, and the 2nd ends in better fashion. I'm sure it's more special if you were there, but damn, this is certainly not a five star show!! 12/27 will be up at some point I'm sure, it's better.
Reviewer: cph - - March 10, 2005
Subject: also saw the show
I have to agree with Sponge. I saw that whole run and this night was the best of them. I agree that the second set was so-so, but the first set was amazing -- and one of my favorites of nearly 200 shows.
Reviewer: Sponge - - January 2, 2005
Subject: Saw the show
In fact I saw all the shows this stop ÃÂ this was the best. I guess you had to be there, everybody was wild, the roof naerly came off the old place. The boys must have liked it too: satisfaction plus the best damn Baby Blue I've seen.
Reviewer: chnactsnflwr - - November 2, 2004
Subject: inspiration?
nice setlist, but it should have included "sometimes I feel so uninspired"
Reviewer: Steinbergerman - - July 1, 2004
Subject: what a 1st set!
They sound a little tired, but a setlist to die for in the 1st half!
Reviewer: Imercator - - July 1, 2004
Subject: Some Nights You Can't Get No Traction
A dissapointingly sleepy show throughout. The boys don't even wake up for the second set, with Jerry fumbling pretty much every verse (and getting very lost in his solos) in Shakedown and delivering a very weak Terrapin. Sound on the other hand is very good, with the exception that Baby Blue is patched from another B+ quality SBD. Despite this, the band just do not sound "On" this night, especially in comparison to the killer 12/30&31 shows. In his Satisfaction rap, Bobby quips "Some nights you just can't get no traction". Yep, sums this one up alright.
